Elkhart prosecutor and former Indiana AG Elkhart declares candidacy for governor of Indiana



Elkhart, Indiana – Former Elkhart prosecutor and Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill declared his intention to run for governor on Monday.

Hill declared his candidacy for governor of Indiana in the Republican primary on Monday, per a press release from his team. After serving as an Elkhart County prosecutor for 14 years, Hill was last elected as the state’s attorney general in 2016.

According to earlier reports, term limitations prevent Indiana’s current Republican governor, Eric Holcomb, from running for reelection.

Hill joins three other Republicans who have declared their intention to run for governor of Indiana in the Republican primary. Included in this are Eric Doden, the former head of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation, Mike Braun, the current U.S. senator from Indiana, and lieutenant governor Suzanne Crouch.

In 2018, at a party at an Indianapolis bar, Hill is alleged to have grouped three female employees intoxicatedly. Hill received a reprimand from the Indiana Supreme Court in 2020, which resulted in a 30-day suspension of Hill’s legal profession. But eventually, no criminal charges were brought.

In a hit-and-run accident close to Washington Street, a pedestrian died.

In 2022, an appeals court determined that because Hill lacked job responsibility over the women who had sued him, they were ineligible to sue him for sexual harassment under federal law.

The announcement indicates that Curtis wants to serve as governor of Indianapolis, which he claims is in “desperate need of revival,” and to bring transparency, efficiency, effectiveness, and executive leadership “back to Indianapolis.” In addition, Curtis emphasized that if elected, he would “hold lawmakers and government bureaucrats accountable.”

“After much prayer and consideration, I am excited to announce my campaign for Governor of Indiana,” Hill said in the release. “Hoosiers are hungry for a proven conservative leader with the courage to stand up for the traditional values upon which our Republic was built. Our campaign will emphasize a positive vision for Indiana, restoring faith in our institutions, protecting our children, investing in our law enforcement, prioritizing the rebuilding of our economy, and placing the needs of Hoosiers above the manipulation of Washington, D.C. As a lifelong Hoosier, I understand the issues impacting our communities, and I am humbled by the support our campaign is already receiving. We are building a strong coalition of grassroots supporters committed to putting a strong Indiana conservative in the Governor’s Office.”

Former Indiana superintendent of public instruction Jennifer McCormick and Bob Kern have each declared their willingness to compete in the Democratic primary. Libertarian Donald Rainwater also declared his desire to seek for the job.
